A Classic Priorat. Grenache and Carignan, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged one year in French casks.  But more importantly, since this is a 2015 vintage, it is ready to drink now! 

Grenache and Carignan vines over 35 years old, and Cabernet Sauvignon.  Sauvignon vines 20 to 25 years old. The plots are located in different areas within the Priorat regions: Bellmunt, Gratallops, Torroja, La Vilella Baixa and El Molar.  

The varieties, from selected low-yield vineyards, are vinified separately, fermenting at a controlled temperature between 20ºC and 22ºC. Maceration is long, about 24 days. Subsequently, malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine is transferred to French and American oak barrels to age 12 months at a constant controlled temperature of 18ºC. After ageing, the barrels are blended and bottled. The wine is stored at least 4 years before being released to the market. 

Bright-deep garnet color of medium depth. Intense on the nose, with aromas of ripe black fruits such as blackberries, plums and black cherries backed by hints of black pepper and menthol. On the palate, Joan Giné is intense and with a smooth texture, showing a high fruit concentration of red and dark ripe fruit flavors: pomegranate, raspberry, blackberries, blackcurrant, wild berries and plums. Subtle mineral back end of spice flavors such as black pepper, menthol and thyme. Lingering and fresh, giving good juice of acidity.

Grapes:  Grenache, Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%).
Soil:  Slate soil (Slate of the Carboniferous period).
Alcohol:  Between 14º - 15º. ABV.

Award tasting note: "Deliciously ripe dark fruit laced with dried herbs. Sweet with a fresh, saline finish." - BronzeInternational Wine Challenge

92pts - International Wine Report, 2022
This blend of Garnacha, Cariñena and Cabernet Sauvignon offers an inviting complex nose of red plum, dark tree bark, sweet baking spice, vanilla, and a breeze of salty air. BIG on the palate – big tannin, big acid, big structure, long finish. Richly fruited with red plum and blueberry, a dust of brown sugar and cinnamon. Enjoy as is for approximately 5 more years or give it 10-15 to see what wisdom it offers with a little age”.
